Imam: Peace in the Middle East must begin in the United States


 

Imam Abdullah Antepli is the Chief Representative of Muslim Affairs, Duke University/Adjunct Faculty of Islamic Studies. In that capacity, his life’s work is bridging gaps between Muslims and other religious communities, including Jews. It’s no small accomplishment that he has become an eminent voice and authority, given that he calls himself, “a recovering anti-Semite.” 

He was a recent guest of the Jewish Journal staff, and shared his views of the current state of affairs between Muslims and Jews, what it was, what it is and what he and millions of Muslims and Jews around the world hope it can become.
